« To hear your son say a few words, to watch him play with a little friend, to realize that he learned a new game, these are joys that are common to all mothers. When your son is five years old and is barely starting to do these things which you wondered if he ever would, you feel overwhelming joy. My son Henri-Louis has a global developmental disorder. To be able to socialise with others and to learn to say a few words, he needed a lot of stimulation and attention. Thanks to the Society, Henri-Louis managed to develop his full potential.»
Mother of Henri-Louis
The Papillon services enable children with disabilities to develop their potential like all other children. Each year, 2,000 children and their parents appeal to the Quebec Society for Disabled Children. Via its respite program, reference and information service, residences, vacation camp, transportation service, and early childhood stimulation centre, the Society strives by all possible means to respond to the most pressing needs of the children and their family.
The sums raised enable the Society to fund :
3,125 families receive direct support from the Society every year.
For children up to 18 years of age, the total costs of a ten-day regular stay at Camp Papillon are $1,725. Thanks to the generous support of the Society's donors, low income families may receive financial assistance of up to $1,070.
Help us reach our goals
Thanks to your support, the Quebec Society for Disabled Children hopes to soon be able to pilot many early childhood stimulation programs, establish Papillon Residences in all major areas of Quebec, and welcome more youngsters at Camp Papillon every summer.
